Ho`ola Hou Scholarship Recipients
The MOM Hui News Release
Congratulations to this year’s 2015-2016 Ho`ola Hou Scholarship recipients: Kelsie Tanabe, Kamakalehiwa Purdy-Avelino, Lahela Tamanaha, Waipuna Paleka, Kiloaulani Ka`awa-Gonzales and Michaiah Soares. Each individual will receive a total scholarship award of $1103 for the school year.
The Ho`ola Hou Community-Supported Scholarship Fund has been made possible through the MOM hui’s Annual Grassroots Benefit Concert, where 100 percent of the silent auction proceeds benefitted the fund. It is also funded by the Molokai Environmental Protection Fund, managed by the Tides Foundation, which “supports organizations that protect the Hawaiian island’s environment and enhance its community’s access to legal services, education, and environmental advocacy.”
Mahalo to the individual donors and members of the Molokai Environmental Protection Fund for your generous contribution. With your continual support we will be able to offer scholarship awards to our Molokai community for many, many years to come.
Best of luck to our scholarship recipients!
